    Program Description

    ICLP's 2024 Europe-Taiwan Summer Chinese Program offers intensive online language instruction to students located in Europe over the course of six weeks.

    The curriculum consists of 2 one-on-one classes each day. Classes are held daily from Monday to Friday. One class is 50 minutes.

    After being accepted, students are asked to provide at least 6 time slots out of the 11 time slots between 13:10 and 24:00 Taiwan time (UTC +8) in which they will be available for classes. A student's classes may be scheduled at any of the time slots they provided.

    Classes at ICLP emphasize oral practice, so students must spend adequate time (no less than 1.5 hours daily for each class they take) preparing and reviewing each lesson. While speaking is a core component of the ICLP curriculum, all classes provide comprehensive training in speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Coursework may include reading materials, recorded audio materials, written assignments, and speeches. Textbooks are written in Chinese characters; some are rendered in simplified Chinese to suit students' needs.
